of the joint chiefs, martin dempsey, and i asked them that very question, like why wouldn't you on 9/11, have troops sort of ready? and dempsey said to me, we did, the minute we knew the incident happened, the secretary of defense said, move some troops, scramble some troops, get them ready, let us know what their transit time would be. that's where it ended. i said, why didn't you just move them at that moment when you knew there was trouble. here's what dempsey said. >> we can't be a replacement. it was 9/11 elsewhere in the world not just in libya. >> that's pretty much what secretary panetta said again. >> this is not 9/11, you cannot just simply call and expect within two minutes to have a team in place. it takes time that's the nature of it. our people are there, they're in position to move. but we have to have good intelligence that gives us a head's up that something's going to happen. >> there will be lots of similar questions and even a broader discussion if as expected the defense secretary goes up on the hill to talk about benghazi. >> chuck hagel who is the alleged next secretary
of the joint chiefs of staff, dempsey, that there wasn't time to get there. it wasn't really a seven-hour battle, more like two twenty-minute battle that is took place over a seven-hour period. the expressed no regret from the military point of view was what was done differently that day. it was interesting. i think they will get a lot of pushback on capitol hill. we learned hearings are likely to take place thursday. that's at least the day they were looking at. that's simply because you did have some republicans saying i'm not going to vote to confirm senator chuck hagel, who is the president's nominee for the next defense secretary until we hear from leon panetta about what happened in benghazi from the military point of view. you're going to see that testimony next week. >> speaking of the president, we'll hear from him this afternoon, his annual presuper bowl interview. a lot going on, changing cabinets, contested -- >> you get different interviews with different interviewers. if this is a sports interviewer, i think that will be different from someone like scott pelley who has
of the cia and head of the joint chiefs general dempsey. >> do you believe that the recent bombing has anything to do with the patriot missiles we have sent there? >> no, this is obviously a terrorist attack, and we have to find out what the motive is here, but i do not believe it is linked there. >> was this an internal thing and they have just attacked the u.s.? >> well sh, the intel community and this is a very recent event and the intel community has exactly that question to wring out and see if there is and coneck shun, but as the secretary said, we have no indication it was. >> and candy, joining us with more of the rare joint interview, and candy, reports that both of them will be testifying before congress on the benghazi attack. >> yes, i talked to them both, and thursday is the day that secretary panetta was not particularly, yes, we are going to do it, but, yes, we are talking to them about that and yes, we are trying to work it out, but later the chairman of the joint chiefs said thursday when we talked about benghazi which is one of the topics for us, he said, well, i'm su
